be manipulated by the obama administration. do you think that the numbers add up? >> i think the suggestion that the numbers was cooked is relatively ridiculous. that being said. economists at the labor department will admit freely that there is a lot of margin of error in these numbers. a month after each job report these numbers are revised upward or downward. the question of the number came out of the household survey, 800,000 plus number, there is a lot of margin for error, possibly as much as 400,000. that is admitted by folks within the labor department, as well. i think you can't get too hung up on the overall numbers because typically these are revised upward or downward. that tends to happen a month later when we stop paying attention. >> heather: what will the numbers do in terms of swaying voters' opinions, specifically undecided voter? do you expect to see a change in the polls as a result of this? >> it's a tough question. i generally think the jobs reports do not move as much of opinion of voting public with the amount of noise in the d.c. bubble so to speak. with all the rest
. >> as the administration concedeed the attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> team obama called the rhetoric erratic and wants a counterattack ad to run in virginia slamming the poorly reviewed european trip four months ago. >> if this is how he handles the world now, think what romney might do as president. >> eager to look resolute and ready to be commander-in-chief romney promised actions. >> for the sake of peace, we must make clear to iran through actions not just words that the nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. >> he pledged help to rebels trying to topple the regime and renewed the charge that obama administration threw israel under the bus. >> i'd restore the presence of the aircraft task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with isr increase our military assistance and coordination. >> reporter: regarding afghanistan, romney said the president depicted anyone who disagrees with the withdrawal timetables as someone arguing for endless war. >> the route to war and potential attacks at home is a politically timed retreat that abandons the afghan people to th
the regime and renewed the charge that obama administration threw israel under the bus. >> i'd restore the presence of the aircraft task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with israel to increase our military assistance and coordination. >> reporter: regarding afghanistan, romney said the president depicted anyone who disagrees with the withdrawal timetables as someone arguing for endless war. >> the route to war and potential attacks at home is a politically timed retreat that abandons the afghan people to the same extremist extremists wo ravaged their country and use it to launch attacks of 9/11. >> democrats complain that romney's speech was filled with criticism of president obama foreign policy but not a lot of specific alternatives. this week is vice presidential debate but next week, president obama and romney meets in face-off on long iland. romney is planning another major speech, this time on the economy. bret? >> bret: carl cameron traveling with governor romney. thank you. there is new information tonight about how bad the security conditions were i
ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply o
the obama administration intentionally misled the american people has not yet been answered. is it fair game politically and will it affect anybody vote? we continue with christine o'donnell and bill kristol and congressman forbes. are people grasping the significance of benghazi gate and paying attention to it or is the economy so paramount that it overshadows everything else? >> in virginia, a different question. not so much whether or not the administration was misleading but why we didn't provide the security that we needed for the individuals that we had there representing the united states the. secondly, it is the big concern with when they talk about how aggressive they pursued this waiting 23 days before they even get in there and get information when tv networks had the information before the united states government. but the big question we are hearing people asking across virginia is why is this an administration that is so willing to cut national defense in the united states but they won't put on the table the defense dollars that we are giving to libya and egypt and some of othe
here on a mission. congressman ryan to criticize the obama administration's failures and republican solutions while vice president biden was defending the presidential record and also complaining about the republican plan for the nation. >> i will be very specific -- >> reporter: vice president joe biden wasted no time challenging congressman paul ryan's take on foreign policy. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarky. not a single thing you said is accurate. >> reporter: the vice president and ryan clashed over the economy. taxes. and medicare. with the democrat often on the attack. >> they are holding hostage the middle class tax cut. about time they take some responsibility. >> reporter: but ryan fired back. he slammed the obama administration's economic record. >> this is not what a real recovery looks like. we need real reforms for a eal recovery and that's what mitt romney and i are proposing. >> reporter: after several heated exchanges ryan said romney's performance last week is motivating the vice president. >> i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for los
the vote in the panhandle. i think that obama administration knows it can put out phony numbers and the only place you will find that out is talk radio and fox news which is dismissed as right wing because the media is in the tank for the president. >> moving on the to vice-presidential debate coming up on thursday, what are your expectation and you must be excite to see how mr. ryan performs. >> i continuing will be similar to the presidential debatement biden makes a lot of gaffes and a lot of people think it would be a blow out. i would warn them septemberor biden who is in the game for a long time and polished politician and charming. and i don't think it will be as obvious of a blow out as it was between romney and obama. but there is gaffe baggery and facts and figures. >> and ryan for not perceived as a policy wonk. and he has to connect with the people one on one. >> he does, like romney, they are like ward cleaver charm cute and don't seem threatening and good husbands and fathers and nothing that seems mean about them. i expect it to be similar though it will not be as
between them and the obama administration. the contrast becomes part of their posturing. how are we going to approach foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm them and where do you draw the red
been hitting the obama administration for china policies, specifically arguing that the president of the united states has not done enough to protect the u.s. economy from china's alleged currency manipulation and unfair trade practices. at each event today, mitt romney and paul ryan have been trying to thump mr. obama for his absence of leadership on this, they say. here is a sampling from earlier today at mr. romney's convenient in portsmouth, ohio. >> over the past several years, the president failed to call china a currency manipulator. he had the occasion on friday to come out with that official designation. you know what they said? we're not going to make any determination until after the election. let me tell you, on day one of my administration, i will label china a currency manipulator. >> here in ohio, that is a particularly potent attack because the manufacturing base had taken such a hit over the past few years, both in the obama economy and before. paul ryan was campaigning today in youngtown, ohio. he made the point that mr. obama has had a number of chances to take
, with the exception of libya which is a special case which the obama administration is clearly on defense. what came across is there is a huge difference in style and attitude how these two campaigns will approach things. when they got to the policies, the two sides are remarkably similar. the romney campaign has throughout this campaign been trying hard to make this big contrast on foreign policy while actually keeping their policies fairly close on afghanistan, syria, on iran, to where the administration is. both sides want a withdrawal in 2014. the difference here is that the romney campaign won't call it a deadline for withdrawal, but they want to withdraw in 2014. both sides support the same set of sanctions for iran. the difference is that the romney campaign may have done something different earlier and may have gone less through the u.n. and may have been more vocal about their criticism of u.n. both have the same policy on syria. the difference is the romney campaign wouldn't have gone through the u.s., wouldn't have been more vocal and supported syrian opposition earlier. on the actual pol
-state solution, free trade, going after terrorists in libya, has been pursued by the obama administration. they're out with an aggressive prebuttle. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england, israel and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, showed a lack of presidential character. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> in a statement, liz smith says quote it's clear on every measure, mitt romney fails the commander in chief test. well, just about two hours from now, romney will deliver that speech at virginia military institute. peter alexander is traveling with the romney campaign in lexington, virginia and joins me now and peter, this is a speech that is largely about the middle east. we're not hearing a lot about asia, a lot about russia. this is really going to be focused on syria, iran, libya and afghanistan. is it not? >> yeah, i think you're exactly right. going to focus on the middle east and northern africa, libya specifically. mitt romney as you noted, wil
profoundly unhelpful with syria and the obama administration has called the russians out on that. on iran, the russias were instrumental in getting us the u.n. security council resolution in 2010, that put in place unprecedented administrations that the bush administration could only have dreamed of. >> i have to leave it there. former member of the administration, thanks for coming on. >> happy to be here. >>> wall street hit a five-year high. market rundown is next. plus, critical county. live in ohio. one of those 15 counties that may decide the presidential election. but first, today's trivia question. who was the first vice president to not become president? tweet me the answer. first correct answer will get a warm bucket of spit from us. no, the answer and more is coming up. we'll be right back. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about low-cost investing. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like our exchange traded funds, or etfs tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 which now have the lowest tdd#: 1-800
, situation here where the obama administration blew it. and are actually accusing the administration of misleading the public. the obama administration denies that. hindsight is 20/20. but there's no doubt about it. there were requests they didn't feel safe. they needed more. let's face it. the facts play out that they had, very good suspicion and they were right. >> and this was not a good time for the hearing, for the obama administration. >> no. >> especially 20-something days away from the election. >> got that right. >> tough. >>> talk about lawyers and jerry sandusky, they say they will fight the attempts to take away his penn state pension. the retirement pension told sandusky will no longer receive $4,900 monthly check. in light of his conviction on child sex charges. sandusky received a total of $900,000 in pension payments between his retirement in 1999 and last month. >> wow. >> that's -- that's a sweet retirement deal. >> $900,000. >> that's a lot. wow. >> apparently the decision rests on analysis that he remained a de facto employee of penn state in the years after his 1
to trade. >> reporter: the obama administration asserted that doing such tough crackdowns on china could lead to a trade war of the fastest growing economy in the word and they said that mr. romney hasn't been entirely pure when it comes to doing business with china himself in his private life and private business experience. the romney campaign says it is all excuses and time for the u.s. government to stop putting up with china's trade practices and currency manipulation and romney says he would take steps on day one to correct that practice. >> the debate coming up quickly. right off the top we showed viewers governor romney in ohio from early talking about success and alluding to how much fun he had on the first presidential debate. now, a couple of days away from the next one and i understand he will be off the trail preparing for that. what else? >> reporter: that's right. talking about the debate last week has been one of his biggest rallying cries in front of big crowds ever since it happened. seems to have been a big huge momentum boost for mr. romney. he did debate prep with hi
the heart, nor does this administration. this administration, i believe, from what i've read of obama and reading his books, just go to his books and you will find that is not about america. he's about other issues that are to tear apart this country. was night's date, i think, very, very telling. again, i will go back to the smirking and gyrations that joe biden was going through were just entertainment and fluff, does like most of the four years he has been vice president. he has danced around issues and absolute fact that needs to be addressed. host: danny, what do you think about what she had to say? >> i judge people based on what they have done and not what they're planning to do. host: we appreciate your time this morning. ellie in south carolina, what did you think of last night's debate, on the mitt romney line? caller: hi, i just think biden was a bully. i thought as americans we were supposed to be against bullying. the other thing is the whole obama administration has done nothing but raise taxes on middle-class. i am a middle-class person and my tax cut was gone out of my
the recovery happens, and if the recovery happens under a barack obama administration in the second term, retroactively, the stimulus will take on this very haloed view. people will go back and look at it and say it in incredibly favorable light. but everything hangs, as much does, as much as, frankly, the general opinion of the liberal project hangs on the re-election of barack obama. frankly. how that story is written is a story that is written about whether barack obama is re-elected or not. >> exactly right. you're very smart. chris hayes the host of msnbc's weekend morning show "up with chris hayes" which is going to be the bomb tomorrow. chris' new book "twilights of te elites." last night's vice presidential debate was full of obvious entertainment value but also two really important and substantive policy issues that finally became part of the campaign that i think changed the campaign in a really serious way. two issues, have not been the focus of the news about the debate today, but they're about to be the focus of this show. that and frank rich coming up. e. up your game. up t

for a moment now. last night vice president biden said the obama administration was not told of requests for more security in the run-up to the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republicans pounced on that claim pointing to testimony the day before from the state department officials that said there had been earlier requests for more security staffing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more on all this. the catherine. >> reporter: good morning. on libya the vice president blamed the intelligence community for bad assessments that informed the administration public and controversyal statements about the attack and suggested the white house was unaware for more requests on the ground in libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community towed us. that they knew. that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view. that's

. bill: has the obama administration taken a position on this. stkphapb. >> president obam on this dan? >> president obama has never been in favor of marijuana usage or recreational use. but the white house and the justice department have been silent on these ballot initiatives. eric holder was sent a letter urging him to speak out. he has not. we've been trying for a weak to get a comment and we are still waiting. >> it is shocking that attorney general holder, that the director, but most of all that k about this. of the united look, it's about health, it's about safety, it's about the future of our country. >> a big question, if it passes in one or two of these states is will the fed step in and enforce federal drug laws because of course bill it will still be illegal according to the federal government even if it's legal in a couple of these dates. bill: thank you. dan springer is on that story in the state of washington, seattle. patti ann: governor romney's speech on foreign policy is under an hour away. it comes on the heels of a big week for the g.o.p. what do they hope to accom
have been foreclosed on during the bush administration, not the obama administration. i would love to talk about facts, but maybe you're just a little bit disingenuous on your backs. -- on your facts. guest: the word liar is a harsh word. we talked about trying to find commonality here. what i will say about it romney, having been around him a great deal, is a man of great faith and strong family and strong family values. if given the opportunity, i know he will leave the country with honesty and integrity. we might disagree with his policies. i disagree with the president and certainly some of his policies, but i certainly try not to question his motives or goals or why he does what he does. i would hope the voters would hope both sides can return stability to this process, and maybe not to be quite as divided. but fight, argue, in debate, but i hope it is fair at the end of the day and able to move forward as a country. host: republican on the line. supporter of mitt romney. -- robert hagan from ohio and jay hottinger, thank you for joining us. a month not to go. we're in early v
by the obamas administration. i do not know if you suggest it, but you said straight out that the obama administration had manipulated it. then you change your tune a little bit. what usually happens over time is that some of these things even out. we are unlikely to see another sharp drop-off in the unemployment rate. another issue that appears to be true is that we are near a low level of people in terms of those participating in the work force. and it went up last month, but it is near a 30-year low. there are still aspects of the job market that are still weak. the unemployment rate is still obviously very high. he had a lot of interesting things to say, but the "wall street journal", it was a bit different from the tweet he put out. host: mr. nardone, what is the bls response to what jack welch wrote? guest: the response to the idea that somebody in the white house called us up and told us that the unemployment rate needed to be 7.8%, that is simply not true. it did not happened. if it did happen, the folks that work on these numbers, they would be the ones the sending out a tweet.
, the obama administration knew within one day it was likely terrorism. fox news learning patrick f. kennedy, a top aide to secretary of state hillary clinton, gave a briefing to congressional aides calling it a sophisticated and complex attack. >>> overnight, north korea warning the united states, you are within range of our missiles. this in response to a deal south korea made with america. it allows south korea to nearly triple the range of its missiles. north korea says it's prepared to counter any threat. >>> new developments in the case of that murdered american jet skier. mexican marines arrested this man, salvador martinez, escovedo, alleged drug cartel leader, believed to be responsible for the death of david hartley. he was killed in 2010 while jet skiing with his wife on falcon lake. she says the arrest raises even more questions about his death. >> i don't believe that he pulled the trigger. i believe it's probably he either said yes, go ahead, or he had something to do with the guys who are behind it. >> gretchen: it's believed he killed 50 people with his own hands and ordered
differences between what a romney ad administration would look like and another four years of president obama might look like? >> even for a person who doesn't think badly of president obama's foreign policy i think it was useful because it reinforced america's need for engagement in the world. general scales was correct, there is military aspect to that which i personally may not consider necessary but i welcome the general tone of more engagement even if i don't think defense spending going up and. tired of wars. tired of unrest. discouraged by the anti-americanism, seen throughout broader islamic world and mood of come home america. let's mend our own problems and heal our own wounds for a while. that is understandable and partly i think right, if we take it too far we can get ourselves into trouble. governor romney arguing not for just more military spending but more effective foreign aid. better coordinated. arguing for a word dare i say sounds like nation-building. places like libya where he wants to do more to help countries get on their feet after revolutions before they have been thr

in the same way. >> gretchen: why would the obama administration come up against that. if you look at the polls, military people usually vote republican. - >> they are trying to keep people who will vote for governor romney and congressman ryan for doing so. this is a generalization and probably true with respect to the military. i don't know the outcome. my prediction that the supreme court will not hear this. you have the weekend in which to vote. you have saturday, monday and special tuesday. and the extra day gone. >> steve: you are gone, too. andrew napolitano thank you. you watch the yankees last night? >> brian: they lost and there will be a game tonight. >> unfortunatelyy lost two. >> gretchen: and that's how we end the segment. judge, how desperate is the obama campaign? mitt romney hates kids? you got to hear this. >> brian: italian captain arrested after leaving the passengers for dead. >> steve: he needs something to do. ♪ ♪ ♪ you got the music in you. ♪ ♪ nature valley trail mix bars are made with real ingredients you can see. like whole roaed nuts, chewy gra
